That's going to hurt Windows 8. That OS depends on touchscreens too much.

All tablets, albeit Apple, Android and Windows, will ALL take a hit from this if they use the same material film, which 2 of them do as stated in the article.

This doesn't just affect Windows 8, so ignorant.

Another excuse to sell products with higher price tag. No wonder it happens every same time of every year.

How about "falling demand as people realize they simply don't need [another] one drives touchscreen prices down."

So... Samsung ordered so much touch screens from its factory that it exploded? I probably misunderstood the article.

So much tin-foil-hat wearing here today...

Anyway, this is the same problem that happens again and again; too few places making something that too many want/need. Not sure if @xpeh is joking or not, but a very similar thing likely is the problem - they had a lot of people making orders, tried to hurry up production, and there was an accident. There are a lot of volatile chemicals used in the manufacturing process for these screens. A messup can easily make a bad situation.
